FEMA AID

To apply for FEMA Aid:

DISASTER SNAP (DSNAP)

Residents of parishes approved for federal Individual Assistance as a result of Hurricane Ida are encouraged to pre-register for Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits (DSNAP).

  • If DSNAP is declared, pre-registration will speed up your application
  • If you pre-registered or applied for DSNAP over the past year, it is not necessary to pre-register again, although you will have to apply by phone during the DSNAP period
  • Go to //dcfs.la.gov/DSNAP
  • Text LADSNAP to 898-211 to receive DSNAP updates, if DSNAP is approved for your area

HOT FOOD WAIVER

Louisiana has received a “hot food waiver” from the USDA to allow DSNAP recipients to use benefits to purchase “hot or prepared foods” through September 28, 2021.

This waiver:

  • is vital to our residents who are displaced or without power and have no means to cook their food
  • applies to P-EBT benefits and DSNAP benefits, if and where approved
  • does not allow the use of SNAP benefits at restaurants, but does allow purchases of prepared food from retailers in Louisiana that accept EBT cards

Note: DSNAP benefits can be used at any retailer in the United States that accepts EBT
